CA Technologies Unites System z and Cloud to advance management and control in today’s dynamic data center

14th November 2013 | By Mouseworld Now Correspondent |

New Delhi, India, November 14, 2013: CA Technologies today announced innovative solutions that help customers unite IBM System z and the cloud. With new and updated offerings that support storage, virtualized environments and application delivery for System z, CA Technologies is helping customers meet the management demands of the dynamic data centers they operate today and reduce costs and improve operations by blending mainframe and cloud capabilities.

Michael Madden, general manager, Mainframe, CA Technologies, said, “Businesses today are operating at a velocity that has introduced incredible and sometimes unexpected demand on the data center. The emergence of shadow IT and the explosion of mobile applications are forcing data center operations to dynamically expand and contract at the will of the user. By providing the tools that marry the capabilities of System z and the cloud we are helping customers efficiently and cost-effectively deliver an expanded portfolio of IT services designed for business responsiveness.”

Blending System z with cloud infrastructures offers greater flexibility to manage the dynamic data center and balance workloads across platforms. A commissioned study conducted by Forrester Consulting on behalf of IBM, says organizations that include mainframe in cloud infrastructures can enable a broad mix of infrastructure service options. “You could offer Linux virtual machines from both the mainframe (when high SLAs are sought) and from commodity infrastructure (when SLAs are lower). Mainframes also can better accommodate high densities of very small workloads with resource guarantees — something very difficult to achieve on commodity resources,” the study further stated.

  • CA Cloud Storage for System z: When used with Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud storage and the Riverbed Whitewater cloud storage appliance, CA Cloud Storage for System z helps customers lower storage costs to pennies per gigabyte and improve storage management operations. Please see related press release for additional information.
  • CA AppLogic for System z: provides the optimal platform for a company’s private cloud initiatives. It helps customers deliver business services and address the technology mandates for increased scale requirements and server consolidation by providing a turnkey solution for Linux deployments on System z. The solution accelerates and simplifies the design and deployment of Linux systems on the mainframe by providing architects with drag and drop functionality to build entire applications and deploy them in minutes.
  • CA VM:Manager Suite for Linux on System z: New releases of CA z/VM solutions optimize the mainframe virtual environment to better support cloud computing and server consolidation initiatives. Enhanced support for IBM z/VM 6.3, which enables Linux guests to be easily moved across a single system image cluster, helps customers control costs, improve performance and increase user productivity to maximize the z/VM systems that support Linux.
